Luke 17:20-21 "Jesus, grilled by the Pharisees on when the kingdom of God would come, answered, “The kingdom of God doesn’t come by counting the days on the calendar. Nor when someone says, ‘Look here!’ or, ‘There it is!’ And why? Because God’s kingdom is already among you.” MSG
Reflection. "God's kingdom is already among you." How much encouragement must we take from these words. When days seem dark and worrisome, we ought to hang onto words like these. They bring hope. When days seem full of light and are joyous, we ought to hang onto words like these. They centre our faith.
And yet, let's keep praying for the Kingdom to come.
And yet, let's keep praying for God's will to be done.
And yet, let's keep seeking the King.
Prayer. Our Father in heaven. Hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done. In Jesus's name. Amen.
